The official Twitter of Final Fantasy XIV announced that there will be some kind of MMORPG announcement on February 5th.
The developers did not provide any details or hints, but, most likely, the players are waiting for the announcement of the next major addition. The last addon, Shadowbringers, was released in July 2019.
Fun fact: the date of the announcement coincides with the recent predictions of the Navtra insider. On the ResetEra forum, he said that in February Square Enix will hold an announcement dedicated to FFXIV , as well as present a remake of Final Fantasy VII for PS5 and Life is Strange 3.
